What is it?
Light Up Princeton is a drive-through Christmas light show that visitors can choose to make a free will donation or donate non-perishable items.
Location: Riverside Park
Time: 6-9pm nightly
Turn your radio to 93.1, and you'll see the lights dance to the music as you drive through!
Light Up Princeton began in 2020 during the pandemic as a way to raise the spirits of the community, and it continues to grow each year. It is a free event, and visitors can choose to make a free will donation and/or a donation of a non-perishable item to the Princeton Pantry.
Each night, volunteers are on hand to greet people as they visit Light Up Princeton. The volunteers name a nonprofit to be the recipients of the free will donations collected that evening. Fifty percent of the money collected goes to that nonprofit, with the other 50 percent being split between the Princeton Pantry and Light Up Princeton.
Many thanks to the community for all the generous donations, to the Princeton Area Chamber of Commerce, City of Princeton, Princeton Public Utilities and all the volunteers for making Light Up Princeton a success!
